YMT Card Holders’ Preview – Viking: Rediscover the Legend – Thu 18 May 2017

YMT Card Holders’ Preview - Viking: Rediscover the Legend

YMT Card holders are invited to be the very first to see our major new partnership exhibition Viking: Rediscover the Legend. Featuring two of the most significant and internationally recognised collections of Viking Age treasure in Britain, the exhibition will explore how the Vikings transformed life in Britain.

Star objects from the British Museum will feature alongside the Yorkshire Museum’s world class collections and will be interpreted in new ways to give a fresh perspective on how Vikings shaped every aspect of life in Britain. It will also feature ground-breaking research by archaeologists and new discoveries by metal-detectorists which will challenge our perceptions of what it means to be Viking.

Free for YMT Card holders, no need to book.
